HS6A Magnetic Encoder

HS6A absolute rotary hollow shaft encoders fit shafts from 0.3" to 0.6" [8-15mm], and offer superior durability compared to ordinary optical absolute encoders. Also available:  AV6A solid shaft flange-mounted models, HS6M magnetic absolute encoders, HS40 severe-duty absolute magnetic encoders that fit shafts 5/8 - 1 1/8" [16-30mm]. 

HS6A encoders have superior shaft seals and bearings that stay sealed to keep contaminants out, despite temperature cycles or liquid sprays. Our encoder seals are protected by mechanical barriers to prevent flexing or failure. Avtron’s superior bearings outlast the competition, even when mounting stub shafts have increased runout. 

Many competitive optical encoder designs risk sensor damage from any vibration or shock. Some designs even use thin glass disks in "industrial" products! Avtron uses only unbreakable disks. 

The HS6A offers a broad range of communication options, from parallel output and SSI to the latest Profibus and Ethernet standards. 

Our optical HS6A encoders use superior sensor, disk, bearing, and seal technology to give top performance in industrial conditions. Select an Avtron HS6A today!
